Re: Need Help - PPP on computer does not work
Just something that may or may not be helpful. If you look closely at the modem's setup, you might discover something like "service" or "hostname" that may be a key for the router to include - if it can. It may not be able to.
I'm several years away from playing with PPP but I recall using some PPP tools to get listings of the available services - if there's more than one it's a key to select the right one. Too often, routers use a strange name for this setting (like "put something here if your ISP says to" ).
It could be as simple as putting the right name as a hostname, too. Or NOT using what the router uses by default. Another setting obscured by simple router interfaces. The PPP negotiation needs a hostname and it may be generic or grabbed from the router's name, for example.
Like mentioned, AT&T forums may have the key. Good luck!
EDIT: Was just looking at »ui.linksys.com/files/E2500/1.0.00/pppoe.htm
It's pretty clear where "Service Name (Optional)" goes. Host (and Domain) Name, too. I'd try every name you find in the modem. Services can be a little harder to find.
